BOUNTIFUL -- An exhibit of photographs and texts, part of the "Faces and Voices of Refugee Youth," will be at Mueller Park Junior High School, Feb. 3-6 from 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. The exhibit is one of a number of activities scheduled along the Wasatch Front as part of the third annual Interfaith Week in Utah. This year's theme is "Faith in Friendship." The public is welcome to attend any of the events. The exhibit to be displayed in Bountiful reveals the faces and voices of refugee youth from war-torn regions such as Bosnia, Kosovo, Iraq, Somalia, Sudan, Afghanistan and Vietnam. It is being sponsored by the Jewish Community Center and Center for Documentary Arts.
Organizers say they hope the images will break down barriers and increase friendships and dialogue. It begins Jan. 28 at the Jewish Community Center, 2 N. Medical Drive, Salt Lake City, before moving to the Bountiful school.
A full listing of activities for the week can be found on www.utahfaiths.org.
Interfaith Week in Utah is sponsored by Proclamation of the Governor of Utah, Proclamation of the Mayor of Salt Lake City, the Salt Lake Interfaith Roundtable, Interfaith Week Committee, Bridging the Religious Divide, National Conference on Community & Justice (NCCJ), and Utah Women in Ministry.
